Description:
Hongbian Tieguanyin means Tieguanyin with a red ribbon. The name refers to the fact that the rim of the leaves that have been reddened through the oxidation have not been removed. Produced on the Montain Bijiashan, in the southwest of the city Anxi.

This tea has been crafted in a traditional manner, contrary to modern Tieguanyin. This means that it has been wilted for a longer time, oxidised at room temperature and the oxidised rims of the leaves (Hongbian) have not been removed. Then the tea has been shaped into lumps (Quan Qiu Xing) and only very slightly roasted.

The varietal Tie Guan Yin is named after Guanyin (in India: Avalokiteshvara), hence in the west this tea is sometimes also called Iron Buddha of compassion, as the name would translate.
Character:
By combining flowery and subtly fruity notes with highly aromatic and herbal nuances, this tea offers a complex and intense tea-tasting.
Category:
An Xi Tie Guan Yin
Storage:
This tea was produced in a relatively green manner and it is stored in a cool place at Länggass-Tee, in order to preserve its freshness.

Description:
Tanbei Guanyin is a traditionally produced Tieguanyin of very good quality, having been oxidized at room temperature. It was roasted over charcoal in January 2018 in Taiwan and has been stored in Bern since. Rounder, with more body and more aromatic than the Anxi Tie Guan Yin that have not been roasted, its fruitiness is pleasantly embedded and becomes beautifully apparent. Replaces the Chuan Tong tie Guan Yin.

This tea has been produced traditionally, and contrary to modern Tieguanyin it has been wilted for a longer period, oxidised at room temperature, and the red rims of the leaves that result from the oxidation have not been removed. Then the tea has been shaped into semi-lumps (Ban Qiu Xing) and moderately roasted.
